Our Twins are Potty Trained...and We Didn't Do it!

Not only did my crazy brother and sister-in-law agree to watch our three small children for nine days after coming home from their honeymoon the week before, which is BRAVE, BRAVE, BRAVE - but they also decided to POTTY TRAIN OUR TWINS. What?!?! I know; I'm sure you think I'm kidding. But I'm not. I'm sure for a large fee they can be rented out.

They texted us the morning after we left with a photo of all three kids in underwear with the caption, "Guess what we're doing while you're gone?"

 The twins were so ready and it had been our plan to work on it this summer, but if I had known that they were going to do it FOR us, we would have gone on a vacation MUCH earlier. For the past few months, they had been telling us they wanted to go potty and were taking off their diapers to go on their own. But we hadn't just fully committed - by actually taking away their diapers. They'd go potty, put the diaper back on; then a few hours later tell us they needed to go again and start the process over. The first few days of potty training with Aunt Becca and Uncle Colin, they'd text us to tell us they had had a few accidents in the day (mostly Aiden...Isabella rarely had any)

By the time we got back from our vacation, they were completely potty trained. Since I've been back for a couple weeks, they've MAYBE had a total of 3 accidents and one of those was when we were in the car and two were because they ran to the bathroom, but couldn't make it in time. They literally peed on the floor in the bathroom. So, obviously they were ready. No treats. No sticker chart. Nothing. It's a WHOLE lot easier potty training kids who have a big brother's who's been going on the potty in front of them forever.
